Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson Review

Hey! I’m back 😃 I wasn’t posting for a few months. Over that time I read over 40 books so I am going to be posting a few reviews highlighting some of my favorite books that I read in the past few months.

Starting off with Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson. I have quickly fallen in love with Tiffany’s books and I have picked up a few other books of hers since finishing Grown.

TW: rape, sexual abuse, manipulation

Can we take a minute to appreciate this cover, omg. The yellow really makes this cover pop. And the earrings oh my gosh. This was definitely one of my favorite book covers of 2020

This book is an absolute gem. I am so glad that I finally got around to picking it up. Grown follows 17 year old Enchanted Jones who wants to become a singer. She meets Korey Fields, 28 years old, a famous singer who tells her he can help her achieve her dreams. She later wakes up with Korey’s blood on her hands but she does not remember killing him.

This book is an absolute gem. I am so glad that I finally got around to picking it up. Grown follows 17 year old Enchanted Jones who wants to become a singer. She meets Korey Fields, 28 years old, a famous singer who tells her he can help her achieve her dreams. She later wakes up with Korey’s blood on her hands but she does not remember killing him.

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the cover. I think this is one of the best covers I have seen all year.

SPOILERS ——————–

Enchanted and Korey’s interactions and actions were hard to read at times. Korey’s manipulative behavior made me feel really icky while I was reading. There were so many times throughout he book where I wanted to slap Enchanted in the face and tell her to RUN!!

“I’m at the W Hotel. I’m sending Tony to come pick you up. Don’t tell anyone.”

“Why?”

“You know, I got to keep my location on the low. Remember, baby, I’m not your average dude.”

Grown was so interesting, I couldn’t stop reading once I started it. It’s pretty clear right off the bat that Korey is not a good person, you can tell through the way he interacts with Enchanted really early in the book.

“I should be happy. Korey is like Edward from Twilight, doting over Bella with his overprotectiveness. Except, I don’t feel happiness. I feel . . . tired. Exhausted from being woken up in the middle of the night over and over. I feel . . . used.”

While this book is difficult to read at times I think it is so important. I would

definitely recommend book to older teens. I can’t wait to dive into more of Tiffany D. Jackson’s books.
